To Mesh and to Mould: Full Day Program

This program focuses on cultural self-awareness and the importance of workers knowing their own culture in order to effectively engage with other cultures. It also introduces ‘the culture of violence’ as a concept which opens up discussion and effective engagement regarding domestic and family violence in culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Child Protection: Full Day Program

This program provides an overview of child abuse and neglect and outlines a therapeutic framework to intervene with families at risk. This includes a philosophy and principles in talking with children about risk, an understanding of coercive control, safety planning and having difficult conversations with parents. It will also assist workers to develop their own professional stance regarding violence and abuse. Reflections and small group work will build confidence and ensure workers can walk away with a range of practical tools they can use.

Trauma Informed Intervention: Full or Half Day Program

This half day program outlines the key concepts of trauma informed practice from a socially constructed perspective, rather than a medical model. It discusses some of the issues that arise with traditional service delivery and invites participants to be mindful of childhood trauma as an underlying issue when working with people and families at risk.
